On the eve of Le Mans, the famed long-distance race in France, guests gathered for the big reveal at the Glass House, a stunning East Hampton residence inspired by Philip Johnson’s mid-century residence. Also on view were the handwritten lyrics to Bruce Springsteen’s “Born to Run,” another American classic and a highlight of Sotheby’s Fine Books and Manuscripts Online sale. Singer-songwriter Kelley James performed songs by Springsteen and chef Daniel Humm’s EMP Summer House pop-up restaurant provided the evening’s fare. Click ahead for images.
